Batman Beyond

The cartoon series Batman Beyond (in the original American Batman Beyond) was produced by Warner Bros.Television, for a total of 52 episodes of 24 minutes each, divided into three series. Broadcast in America in 1999, in Italy was known in 2004 thanks to Italia 1 and Cartoon Network. The story is set 40 years after the exploits of Batman, who by now due to his age, is no longer active in defending the law. Bruce Wayne, in fact, retired several years before, after he risked killing a woman, during a firefight with a criminal. retired to private life. This led to the social degradation of Gotham City, which has now become a land of conquest for every type of criminal organization. His own company is now in the hands of Derek Powers, a powerful man who organizes shady dealings. The protagonist of the series is the young Terry McGinnis, son of Warren McGinnis, a former employee of Bruce Wayne. His father was killed by Derek Powers assassins, as he discovers nerve gas trafficking by the billionaire. This is what Terry McGinnis reveals to Bruce Wayne, when he is rescued by the latter, after an assault on the Jokers, followers of Batman's archenemy. Terry McGinnis wants to avenge his father's death and for this he asks for help from Bruce Wayne, who refuses him as he has sworn not to wear the role of Batman anymore.

Terry McGinnis e Bruce Wayne

Terry decides to take justice into his own hands and steals Batman's suit, ventures to thwart the criminal organization's plans. Bruce Wayne, understands the courage and the desire for redemption of that boy, therefore he decides to follow him in his intent, guiding him and enriching him with precious strategic and technological suggestions, which will allow him to face the enemies of Gotham City. In this he will be helped by the beautiful Barbara Gordon, the police commissioner who has taken the place of his father and who in the past has worn the clothes of Batgirl.
In 2002 the animated film "Batman Beyond - The return of the Joker" was released, a sequel to the animated series of the same name, where Joker returns to Gotham City to eliminate Bruce Wayne, a new Black Knight will save his mentor and discover the secret of the evil immortal. After 40 years of absence, Joker breaks into the estate of the millionaire Wayne, revealing that he knows his true identity. Joker is about to kill Bruce, but Batman Beyond, aka Terry McGinnis, arrives in time to save him. The film can be considered the pinnacle of the new line inaugurated years before with "Batman - The Animated Series", since, more than in the past, it represents contents and situations more suitable for an adult audience. The final solution that explains the longevity of the historic antagonist is the clearest example. Precisely for this reason, Warner has created a "cut" version for television and home video, publishing the full version on DVD, and rewriting many scenes that have ended up trivializing the story itself.
